Re: Indian Aviation Thread - June 2020

Can someone explain the AI DEL-YYZ flights operating as AI-187? Repatriation flights?

I was out walking the dog and caught the beautiful AI 77W in the morning soft sunlight. Beautiful sight.

Looking at FR24, I see it flew on the 9th, 12th and today and shows a code share with UL as UL-3640
